"Brilliant for beginners & people on a shoestring budget"5.0 starson by iamelwoodblues
Pros: Easy to use
Plenty of accessories and compatible lenses to use
I love the noise reduction
Battery lasts for hundreds and hundreds of shots
Feels solid, well built and ergonomic
Both kit lenses (the 18-55mm and the 55-200mm) are sharp, accurate, fast and v
Cons: I would've enjoyed a higher res LCD screen but this one is sufficient
Video is OK and the settings are more flexible than the Canon equivalent (things like shutter aperture and ISO settings can be manually set)
Lacks some of the features that come higher
Summary: I really can't fault this camera! It's my first DSLR and from the moment I fired it up and took my first shots with it I felt at home with it and haven't really needed to hit the manual to work things out! It's seen me progress from Amateur to Intermediate photographer and has accompanied me to many different occasions in all circumstances; it hasn't left me wanting for a moment!
I had a look at some of the 3 word 1 star reviews of this kit and I can't understand why, the pictures are brilliant and tack sharp, the menus make sense and even the video (which isn't what an SLR camera is really designed for) is OK; I'm gonna assume that people giving poor reviews just haven't taken the time to work this camera out and find what the best settings are or how to use it properly. I think there's a reason Flickr rates this as the 3rd most popular Nikon camera in its database, it's just that good and easy to use!
Cons ive listed above but for a cheap, good quality SLR this one is perfect!
P.S. if you wanna have a look at some of the photos I've taken with this camera as proof of what I think of it and its performance...have a look here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/62178886@N05/
